Hyderabad: There’s no mention of a Raj Bhavan in the report of the Sivaramakrishnan Committee on the cost of constructing administrative buildings in the new Andhra Pradesh capital. The Sivaramakrishnan Committee and the State Advisory Committee on the state capital, headed by minister P. Narayana have made separate presentations to Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu, but there are many variations in the two reports regarding the estimated costs of various constructions.
While the Sivaramakrishnan Committee has estimated that Rs 1.12 lakh crore will be needed for construction of the capital, the State Committee in its report prepared by consultants has estimated that it will require Rs 1.40 lakh crore. However, the former has overlooked the Raj Bhavan in the new capital.
The Sivaramakrishnan Committee has estimated Rs 15,000 crore for an eight-lane road connectivity between the Telangana and AP capitals while the state committee has estimated Rs 20,000 crore for the same.
